50% OFF Sale on Bass Boat Saver

bbs50off

We are half way through the summer so we figured why not do a half price sale on Bass Boat Saver!!!  All Bass Boat Saver products are 50% off at Radioworld right now.  Great time to stalk up on this amazing cleaning product for just about anything you own.

Bass Boat Saver cleans, preserves, and UV protects your boat, in addition to leaving a nice, waxed look. Fast-acting ingredients deliver a long-lasting and durable finish. After coming off of the water, apply Bass Boat Saver to a damp cloth and wipe the boat, motor, and trailer, as well as the seats, console, and trailer tires. We have all watched boaters at the ramp use glass cleaner or some other harsh chemical to clean their boat after a day on the water. These products break down the gel coat and clear coat. UV rays from the sun will damage these finishes also. With continued use of Bass Boat Saver, your boat, motor, trailer, and all accessories will retain a deep, rich color and will be protected from the elements. Bass Boat Saver is completely biodegradable and is no danger to our fisheries.

Garmin Pro-Staff – Johnston Brothers Notch Another Win!

Galway-Cavendish and Harvey-20140621-00644

For the Garmin fishing team of Corey and Chris Johnston, June ended on a fishing high note.  Corey and Chris have the latest Garmin fishing gear on their boat and competed in a Bass Tournament in Ontario on the Tri-Lakes, the Mighty Mucks Bass Open to be specific.  The yearly tournament takes place on Chemong, Buckhorn and Pigeon Lakes and Chris and Corey were among 95 other teams that were fishing for large and smallmouth bass.

After the dust settled and all the fish were caught, Corey and Chris had a final weigh-in of 21.15 lbs. which was good enough to win the tournament!  They took home a nice cash prize of nearly $5,000 and bragging rights over the other competing 95 teams.

Curve Lake First Nation 35-20140621-00639

On board, they used 2 GPSMAP 1040xs chartplotters, a GCV 10 sounder black box (for DownVu and SideVu sonar) and Canada LakeVu HD Ultra for mapping.

Great job, Chris and Corey!  Best of luck fishing the rest of the year!

About Bob Heil (source Wikipedia)

Bob Heil (October 5, 1940) is an American sound and radio engineer most well known for creating the template for modern rock sound systems. He founded the company Heil Sound in 1966, which went on to create unique touring sound systems for bands such as The Grateful Dead and The Who. He invented the Heil Talk Box in 1973, which was frequently used by musicians such as Peter FramptonJoe Walsh and Richie Sambora, and is still in use today.

Heil has been an innovator in the field of amateur radio, manufacturing microphones and satellite dishes for broadcasters and live sound engineers. In the late 1980s Heil Sound became one of the first American companies to create and install Home Theaters, and Heil has lectured at major electronic conventions and taught classes at various institutions.

He has won multiple awards and honors, and in 2007 he became the first manufacturer to be invited to exhibit at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

2014 Ham Radio Field Day report

As an  annual tradition the Amateur Radio community holds its annual field day event on the last weekend in June. This event showcases the spirit of ham radio in a friendly competition but more importantly prepares them for emergency operation by setting up stations in remote areas with nothing more then backup generatorsfor power etc…

It is nice to see the local media supporting this event by providing some great coverage in local community newspapers…

Here are links to three clubs  covered by the media

Peel/Mississauga clubs coverage

York Region club coverage

Why not contact a club next year and plan to attend one of these great events and get a taste of a great hobby.

Lowrance HDI Transducer Shields in Stock Now

hdi skimmerIf you plan to mount your new Lowrance HDI Skimmer transducer that came with your Elite unit on your trolling motor you should consider adding a transducer shield for this setup. On the new HDI transducer there is a plastic bracket that slides onto the transducer which is then attached to the mounting hardware.  This plastic bracket can be a weak link, should you accidentally hit an underwater obstruction.

The best way to avoid damaging the mount ($40 to replace) or even the transducer ($130 to replace) is to protect it with a Transducer Shield and Saver TSHDI2.  This is by far the best option out there to protect the larger HDI transducer.  These and many other Transducer Shield and Saver products are in stock at Radioworld.
